Exhaustion is a funny drug. It instills in you a childlike weariness, part attention deficit disorder, part dreamy delirium. I found myself drifting in and out of conversation at dinner just now, each topic change punctuated by yawns and copiously repeated “Huh?”s as I struggled to fill in the blank spots my tired brain had missed.
More eating. More yawns.
But then, as my mind drifted away into oblivion once more I found myself wondering if this is how sloths live their lives every day…
And suddenly my sleepiness didn’t bug me anymore.
